​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​About the local authority elections

One of the most important ways you can take part in the decisions that shape the Rotorua district is to get involved in the local authority elections, either by voting for the people who will make those decisions, or by standing for election as a representative on Rotorua Lakes Council.​

Local Authority elections are held throughout New Zealand on the second Saturday in October every three years, the next being Saturday 12 October 2019. The last election was in October 2016. Registered voters in the Rotorua district vote by postal vote using the First Past the Post (FPP) electoral system.

The local authority elections are conducted under the provisions of the Local Electoral Act 2001, the Local Electoral Regulations 2001 and the Local Government Act 2002.

Rangatahi mā, vote!

Ngahuia Hona-Paku of Te Arawa and Ngāti Kahungunu has joined Te Mauri Kingi (Te Arawa, Tainui and Ngāi Tūhoe), and stepped in front of the camera to call on taiohi to vote in the upcoming election.​

Ngahuia says "I challenge

you to stamp your mark by
ticking the boxes because
you have a right." ​​​
